ABOUT

Stefanie Verhoef is an artist and contemporary jewellery designer from Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

She makes contemporary jewellery with a conceptual character. Her designs are defined by a rough edged yet delicate aesthetic.

She was trained as a goldsmith during a technical education in Amsterdam.

After this she studied Fine Arts and Education. She holds a Bachelor in Fine Arts & in Education.

Throughout her art studies, jewellery and design always played a big role. Being trained as a goldsmith, a fine arts artist and an art teacher, she learned many ways of creating and expressing.

Designing and making jewellery has always been the core and working within the contemporary and conceptual field is where she feels most comfortable.

In her work Stefanie is always looking for original and innovative contrasts. It’s an overarching theme in her collections. By looking for unusual opposites and placing them together, both interacting elements can fully show their potential.

The contrasts can be found in unconventional stone setting, use of color, material or in the shape itself.

All balanced together it defines her aesthetic; rough edged yet surprisingly delicate pieces. 

 

Her collections tell stories of personal observations or fascinations.

Stories are endless and so are most of her collections; designs keep developing and thus a collection is never really finished. 

 

She creates unique one of a kind pieces as well as limited or unlimited editions.
